Cannot Load Hexen Cd Anymore After Tsop

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

After successfully TSOPing my 1.4 xbox, I can no longer load the Hexen disc. Is this normal?

I am running unleash X as my dashboard. I was able to load  the Hexen disc to complete my initial TSOP, but not anymore. Any thoughts?

It has nothing to do with that as literally everyone else who tsop flashes and runs Unleash X can read anything if their dvd drive works. Your dvd drive is nearing 20 years old. It's most likely on its way out as everyone else's is. You will be better served by FTP'ing anyways.

Hi Admin,

Thank you for your reply. The DVD drive reads my retail XBOX games and audio CDs perfectly. So I don't think the DVD drive is failing.

It only has trouble reading the Hexen dvd. I was able to load the Hexen DVD during the initial TSOP stage. After TSOP, the Hexen is no longer loading.

I prefer to use the DVD to repair or fix any issues in the future if my HD fails. Any ideas?

Your logic is pretty flawed. 
You think your drive is good because it reads pressed games and pressed audio cds perfectly, yet won't read your burned dvd. 
You're describing a failing dvd drive to the letter. If you'd prefer to use the dvd drive, you may have to purchase another or you can try the pot tweak for your drive.

You could try making a new Hexen disk and when your burning it set the write speed as slow as the burner will go , Also some USB style DVD/CD writers are slower than built in one's.

I also have a preference for Verbatim DVD-r disk's but you may need to try different brands and types DVD-r, DVD+r, DVD-rw  it can be hit and miss.

As Admin has posted now that you can network in to the Xbox that's the most reliable way to get files on your Xbox.

And as it's been mentioned before the all the drives are getting to the end of there life and the 1st sign is having problems reading copied disk's and slightly marked ones.

Hi All,

Thank you all for replying. I resolved my issue. Turns out that I needed to wait for a while (at least 40-60 seconds) for my Hexen disc to boot from the dvd drive.

There is nothing wrong with my DVD drive or the Hexen disc. My apologies.

That's good to hear I had forgot about the long delay that Hexen has.

      Hello everyone.  I've asked this question on FB, but would like to verify with this crowd here.
      I have softmodded an v1.6 using Rocky5 most recent version.  I would like to swap to a 2TB SATA drive.  I understand this can be done with a hot swap, cloning the original drive with chimp and then formatting with xb partitioner.
      Is this correct?  Why does this work if the bios is supposed to need LBA-48 to see a large drive?  Is it because each partition is small enough to not need LBA-48?
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys,
       
      I’m new to the forum.  Up til now I have only softmodded Xboxes, and it has been quite a while.  I haven’t had an Xbox for the last couple years and I decided I miss them.  So, I picked one up a couple days ago. It is v1.1 and have already softmodded it.  I also picked up a 2TB HD, SATA adaptor, and 80 wire IDE cable.  But I’m thinking that before putting the drive in, I’d like to try TSOP flashing it, then doing a clean install with HeXEn 2018. I have a small list of questions, hopefully I can get answered first.
       
      First, I read somewhere on here (I think under the HeXEn 2018 post), that some of the bios have the dvd check turned off by default.  So this is going to sound dumb but, will it still boot from dvd (for HeXEn?)
       
      Second, I know I have a 1mb TSOP (mine is the ST.) Can someone recommend a bios?  I don’t plan to use more than one, 
       
      Third, I’ve heard that after you TSOP flash, you should remove the jumpers to avoid accidental damage.  What are the thoughts and/or dangers on this?  Wouldn’t the only potential problem be another flashing?
       
      My understanding is I need to leave the HeXEn disc in the drive before I begin.  Then I would take out the board, solder the points on top and bottom of the board. Then put it back together and boot to HeXEn and flash it.  Then when it’s done, I can turn it off, swap the drive, and boot to HeXEn again and do a clean install. Is there anything I missed, or anything else I need to leave on the hard drive? Like I said, I already did the softmod. 
       
      And is there a way to check that the solder worked, and I have TSOP access, prior to flashing?
       
      Any help is appreciated.
